Hi,

I recently took GRE and Got 151 in verbal section but I knew all of words and there wasn't any word that I didn't know . I know my score is not good but this is not related to words! I am so slow in reading and that is the problem to me. To learn GRE words, first I used jmemorize software to learn 1100 and 504 vocab. Then I started to write a story about a family and I used all of 1100 words with their synonyms and antonyms in the story.With this method, in a week I became master. I read my story several times and enjoyed so much since I am a good writer:). Also every day I wrote new gre word that were so hard to memorize, on a whiteboard,and at the end of the day I learned them completely. Also I installed magoosh application on my cellphone and every day I reviewed GRE words. But the most interesting part to learn GRE word is Verbal Advantage (Audio+pdf). You can listen to it when you are in train, taxi, street,... that is so great and really helps you to improve your knowledge in vocab.

How many words per day would you suggest? I don't commute through public transport. So gotta stick to the traditional mnemonic method. I sat for the exam last November and scored somewhat like you. But last time I didn't study much for verbal. But this time I want to really give it a go.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Scrat

Verbal is about more than just your vocabulary. The contextual understanding of the words matter, since your flexibility to use and understand them will be tested.

Thanks a lot. I will keep that in mind and study accordingly. If you don't mind can you please tell me what material can I follow. I have around 20 days left and I haven't finished OG yet. SO, other than OG what should be my go-to-source.

Regards,
Scrat

Well, let me answer you with my own experience:

When I started learning (I emphasize "learning" not memorizing)I tried to write a story in which all GRE words with their synonyms and antonyms were used, so that sometimes I learned 100 per day! It really depends on your story! For example, My story is about a rich family in which you can see silent, reticent and taciturn matron, fretful, peevish, grumpy girl! Also remember besides the story, you should write hard vocab on a whiteboard. at first maybe it seems hard but when you start writing your own story it will become easy. You should read and use GRE words in the sentences.

Generally I am good at reading and got 28 in reading at TOEFL ibt test and I don't have any problem with other sections in GRE verbal except RC.I waste time a lot in RC sections. Without timing, I can answer correctly more than 15 out of 20 verbal questions. In order to increase my speed in reading, I am reading journals and magazines everyday.
I hope I could help you.
